Dec. 27th

HAPPY DEC 27TH!

This isn't any sort of anniversary or anything, but it is just a few days away from the end of the year.

The end of the year!

Can you believe it?

I'm going against one of my  main "rules" for starting the new year and I'm going to make it a goal to lose weight in January.

Speaking of losing weight - don't go to Food Gawker and see what they have over there.  It isn't diet friendly.  I found myself there today and am totally kicking myself.

I don't make resolutions for a new year, I just never have.  I know myself well enough to know that I have next to zero follow through with so many things especially if I feel I'm being forced into it - even if it's me doing the forcing!

However,  I have been gaining weight like crazy the past few months and I have to stop this cycle.   Some of it is medication related, but most of it is self related.   The medication started the cycle and I just allowed it to take over!  eeek!

I know how to lose weight and I know how to do it in a healthy way.  I even love eating the foods on my weight loss plan.  In fact, I eat very well - healthy - most of the time.  What I don't do as often is exercise.  So that's what I'm going to move to the very tippy top of the list.

In fact, I haven't even waited for the first of the year (because I don't like those New Years Resolutions) I've started today.

Since it's good to have a date to shoot for, I've picked one.  02/10/2010  That's the date.  It's the day before I leave for Rome.  I want to be 25 pounds thinner than I am right at this moment.  It's totally doable.  I'm excited.

Happy Dec 27th!! (for another 8 minutes!!)

Fantastic that you started today! Here's to 02-10-2010! It's so exciting to learn that you are going to Rome. Vacation? Study? Work?

I have really slid on my yoga practice so need to get real with that again. I actually practiced one night this long weekend, but I ate too much dinner tonight to do an evening practice now - in spite of your inspiration. There's always tomorrow!

Happy New Year (almost)

I'm right there with you - not a New Year's Resolution person, but making some this year.

You will achieve it!

Happy New Year!

I would say keep in mind your follow through efforts on your blogging! There is a gallant effort if I ever saw one! Body health (and beauty of course)is/can be every bit as important and rewarding as blogging. And, since you will be blogging about it (as you just did) there will be additional support. Go for it!

When I decided to hike Pikes Peak, I just Had to lose some weight. I was not about to haul all that excess up the mountain. Same goes for Rome. :o)).........lm you can do it.

Good luck K - I'll be your cheerleader - I am so envious (in a nice good way) how much you travel. I look forward to reading your posts of Rome. It will be a few years yet before I can travel, so I'll visit those fun places thru your camera and writings.

Sounds like a perfect plan, wishing you success.
